Fully Landscaped. I just learned this term today as I was flipping through The Black Book of Hollywood Beauty Secrets by Kym Douglas and Cindy Pearlman. “Used to describe someone who doesn’t have hair in places where she doen’t want hair,” say the authors, who have another book called The Black Book of Hollywood Diet Secrets. Who knew that such a light read could inspire me to come up with my top 3 Fully Landscaped Finds. They are, in no particular order:
1. California Nails and Day Spa in Galleria (For bookings, call or text +639178607657). Hannah, the salon’s lone waxing specialist, does a is very light-handed and has a keen eye for the smallest stray hair. (starts at P700)
2. Reggie Navarro (Call or text +639173991189 or +639208183410) will go to you and give you the cleanest Brazilian you can imagine. She is a perfectionist, and will leave your nether regions as bare as a baby’s bottom, even if it means pulling out her trusty tweezers and plucking out remaining sparse strands one by one. Her convincing powers are very strong, too. My good friend came to see her for just a bikini wax, but Reggie sweet talked her into getting fully landscaped (I can’t stop using this word!), so my friend, a Brazilian virgin at the time (not a virgin Brazilian, mind you, that would be a totally different thing), cursed me at the start, but became a believer soon after. (starts at P700)
3. Wilma the Bulbolizer (+639178059176) is an expert waxer based in Pampanga. She comes to Manila two or three times a week (usually Tuesdays and Thursdays), so you’ll have to fashion your landscaping schedule around hers. And yes, she has coined the term Bulbolizer. Got your period? No problem, says Wilma. She’ll get you stripped and bare in no time. Her clientelle is star-studded too, but I won’t reveal any names here. (P900 for full landscaping [last time I’ll say this, promise], including legs, arms, and eyebrow threading).
